Ideal Logic Max C30 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Ideal Logic Max C30 - standard, combi or system?

The Ideal Logic Max C30 boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

Traditional boilers would require you to install one or more storage tanks in your property. These tanks either kept the water warm or stored it for later heating. Manufacturers initially designed and introduced combi boilers to the market to offer homeowners the highest levels of warmth and unlimited hot water without taking up as much space.

Combi boilers provide hot water on demand for your radiators and taps. They take water directly from the mains, heat it immediately as it's needed, and then distribute the hot water around your home.

Combi boilers, however, are limited in terms of how much water they can heat at any given time. For example, if one person wishes to take a shower while another wants to turn on a hot water tap, the amount of water reaching each point drops. This results in a drop in the water pressure as well as the temperature.

Would the Ideal Logic Max C30 combi be a suitable choice of boiler for my house or flat?

Selecting the right boiler for your home means choosing a boiler that is the right size. And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to it to heat the water you need for your radiators or for when you turn on a tap, bath or shower. A higher output rate means it has more power and can heat more water.

It's important to choose an output that matches the demand for water in your home because if your boiler has too low an output, you'll often find only lukewarm water comes out of your taps or heats your radiators. If it’s too high, you’ll be paying more for your gas than you need to.

The Ideal Logic Max C30 combi has an output of 30.3 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal Logic Max C30 Combi boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced heating engineer would recommend that the Ideal Logic Max C30 combi boiler is a suitable choice for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

With all combi boilers, the "flow rate" (measured in litres per minute) is as important a consideration as output rate when choosing which model to go for. This Ideal Logic Max C30 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

Like all combi boilers, the Ideal Logic Max C30 draws water from the mains. It instantly heats that water and then distributes it to the parts of your home which need it - taps, radiators, bathrooms, and so on.

However, the water in the mains pipe that feeds your boilers has its own flow rate - normally between 10 and 12l/m. So if you choose a combi with a flow rate of 14l/m but local water pressure is equivalent to 11l/m, your boiler will actually operate at 11l/m - below its capacity.

In addition, if different family members want hot water at the same time (like for regular morning and evening showers) and your boiler has to provide hot water to your radiators at the same time, a combi boiler may not be suitable.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


Ideal Logic Max C30 size

The Ideal Logic Max C30 measures 700 mm in height and has a width of 395 mm and a depth of 278 mm.

Is the Ideal Logic Max C30 condensing or non-condensing?

This Ideal Logic Max C30 is a condensing gas boiler - we always recommend that clients choose the latest condensing models to benefit from the technology, which continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation, processing them through a secondary heat exchanger to, among other tasks, heat colder water returning from your radiators.

By selecting a modern condensing boiler, you'll save money on your gas bills as well as benefitting the wider environment.

Is the Ideal Logic Max C30 combi an environmentally friendly boiler?

How we heat our homes has become a pressing issue of concern for many homeowners worried about climate change and the environmental impact of their personal choices.

In the UK, central heating is responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Domestic gas boilers emit large quantities of nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Would installing a Ideal Logic Max C30 combi boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

Under current UK law, all boilers must achieve a minimum energy efficiency level of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). The minimum level was raised from its previous 88% in April 2018.

Energy efficiency scores are intended to inform consumers of the amount of energy used and wasted when a boiler is in normal operation.

The Ideal Logic Max C30 was awarded an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

Energy-efficient boilers help the environment as they require less fuel and emit fewer harmful gases. In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP), the aim of which was to ensure that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

The legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages from initial production to actual use by the customer, through to the point of disposal.

The Ideal Logic Max C30 has been given an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

What length of warranty does the Ideal Logic Max C30 come with?

The Ideal Logic Max C30 boiler comes with a 10 year warranty for parts and labour.

Ideal Logic Max C30 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ideal Logic Max C30 a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

If you want a combi boiler for your flat or house, the Ideal Logic Max C30 might be an option for you to consider.

Traditional boilers have one or more large tanks in which they store either heated water or water to be heated later. Manufacturers originally introduced combi boilers to the market in the 1970s to enable homeowners to save space - UK residential properties are among the smallest in the Western world.

Combi boilers don't need these tanks because they draw water directly from the mains and instantly heat it on demand thanks to the technology inside the boiler. Combi boilers then distribute this hot water to your home’s taps and radiators when needed.

The most significant disadvantage of combi boilers is that they are not ideal in larger homes where multiple people might want hot water at the same time – for example, if someone is having a shower while another wants to wash dishes in the kitchen. This is because combi boilers have a maximum volume of water that they can heat. When two people want hot water at the same time, the water temperature, pressure and volume delivered to both points drop.

Is a Ideal Logic Max C30 combi boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big it is - it means how big its "output" is.

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your gas than you should be.

The Ideal Logic Max C30 combi boiler has an output rate of 30.3 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that the level of output from this Ideal Logic Max C30 Combi boiler would make it a suitable installation option for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

When choosing a combi boiler for your home, you need to think about "flow rates" as well as output rates. This Ideal Logic Max C30 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

This indicates the maximum volume of hot water (measured in litres per minute) that your boiler can heat then distribute to your taps, showers and radiators at any one time. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the higher the flow rate you will require.

However, all combi boilers like the Ideal Logic Max C30 draw water directly from the mains and heat it instantly.

This means that they can only heat and distribute water at the rate it enters the property (the "mains pressure" rate). For example, if your mains pressure is 11 litres per minute, this will be the highest flow rate you can achieve even if your boiler's flow rate is 17l/m.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


The size of the Ideal Logic Max C30 in millimetres

The Ideal Logic Max C30 is 700 mm tall, 395 mm wide, and 278 mm deep.

Logic Max C30 – non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Ideal Logic Max C30 - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in the water vapour condensation and in flue exhaust emissions created by burning gas to make them more efficient and economical to run.

You will save money on your gas bills too, plus condensing boilers are friendlier to the environment.

How energy efficient is the Ideal Logic Max C30 combi boiler?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

Central heating systems are responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. You may also be aware that the gas boilers we use emit dangerous nitrogen dioxide in large volumes in the bigger British cities.

Would installing a Ideal Logic Max C30 combi boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

Under current UK law, all boilers must achieve a minimum energy efficiency level of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). The minimum level was raised from its previous 88% in April 2018.

Energy efficiency scores are intended to inform consumers of the amount of energy used and wasted when a boiler is in normal operation.

The Ideal Logic Max C30 was awarded an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation that aims to reduce the use of energy at all points during a product's life, from the point of manufacture to when it's in active use right through to final disposal.

The regulation aims is to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which reduce the harmful gas emissions associated with those products.

The ERP gradings for the Ideal Logic Max C30 are "A" for heat and "A" for hot water.

What is the length of the warranty on the Ideal Logic Max C30?

The Ideal Logic Max C30 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 10 years.
